Went here with my brother on his recommendation and it was a great choice...great atmosphere and excellent food and service. My burger and fries were delicious and my wife enjoyed her pizza. Will definitely come here again!

We stopped in after another popular restaurant was busy and it was a pleasant surprise. Our waiter had great beer recommendations and was very knowledgable. The food was great too! Will stop again when in Duluth!

My friends and I were in Duluth for a quick stop and didn't want the usual chain food so someone recommended this place. The ambiance is amazing! Old iron everywhere, a big welcoming space, hardwood floors and la piece de resistance - a huge historical picture of the ironworks. We shared a margherita pizza and a loaded one and it... More

I had great food at Clyde's the first time I was there. I was excited to return with friends and family. Unfortunately, with my second experience we sat at our table for 40 minutes without the wait staff even acknowledging our presence. We left. Sadly, I will not be able to recommend this place until the management addresses the staffing... More

Love the food, atmosphere, service, and always bring new people each time I come back, consistently great all around. Have had pasta, burgers, salads, everything delish and each waiter we've had has been exceptionally pleasant with great sense of humor and excellent customer service. Highly recommend if you're in the area!

Seated at noon and by 1 pm we had to ask twice about our order. Told another 25 minutes so we decided to go to another establishment. The decor is loft industrial and interesting. Just not a good fit if you have a timetable. The staff seemed to try but we were insulted when offered a 1/2 off then free... More

We enjoyed our meal at Clyde Iron Works. The menu had a good variety of items including local beer, and our food was tasty. The atmosphere was unique and we especially enjoyed the very large photo/mural of what the building looked like years ago when in use as an iron factory. The waiters obviously need stair stamina, as the kitchen... More

We were staying south of Duluth (in West Duluth) and Clyde Iron Works was recommended by our hotel staff. We sat on the upper area that looked out over a large open area. They have many large prints of the iron works when it was still in operation. This place has multiple large areas for concerts and receptions. The food... More

I travel on business 3 to 4 nights per week and frequently dine out. I have been to this restaurant previously and have always had a good experience. However tonight it was a very disappointed experience. It took over 20 minutes for the server to come by to ask if I would like to order. I placed a drink order... More
